This interactive project is inspired by the properties of the Homeobox genes which essentially define body regions in all animals as well as humans. We seek to create and experiential space that relates the idea that we are all interconnected and share the same gene. The Hox Zodiac is a work in progress and had two world premieres in Asia: at thethe Shanghai International Science and Art Exhibition 2009 and at the Incheon International Digital Art Festival in Korea in August, 2009.The Hox Zodiac continues to evolve.
The goal is to entice the audience with these fascinating genes that are responsible for many different variations of legs, arms and other parts of the body exist in the animal kingdom. The hox gene also plays a role in many dynamic changes in human development and continues to be an important subject for scientific exploration in the areas of brain development, body patterning, and variation across species.
